Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is also serving as President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, predicted that ultimately Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the report issued by special counsel Robert Mueller would prove to be 100% accurate.
Giuliani also dismissed claims of obstruction by political opponents of the president.
“[F]irst of all, you don’t have obstruction by hope,” Giuliani said. “You have obstruction by coercion, threat, ‘I’ll break your legs,’ ‘I’ll take your food away’ or ‘I’ll kidnap your children.’ I prosecuted a lot of obstruction cases. Nobody ever started an obstruction sentence with ‘I hope.’ And nobody did obstruction by putting out a legal memo for the whole world to see.”
“We’re going to find out in a week or two how accurate Bill Barr’s summary was,” he continued. “And I’m going to tell you – it’s going to be 100% accurate. Bill Barr is a great lawyer, and he is an extraordinarily honorable man. I can’t say that for the congressmen who are making all these wild, crazy, insane threats. Their claim of obstruction against the Attorney General of the United States is no better than the two-year claim of obstruction by the angry Democrats that tried to claim the president was obstructing. The president didn’t obstruct anything, and the best evidence of that is they completed their darn investigation. How the heck was it obstructed? Nothing was obstructed.”
